Tuesday Trash Bubbles: Celebrating Fluxfest 2016

This week’s Trash Bubble was inspired by the upcoming Fluxfest Chicago 2016, to be held over Memorial Weekend. I have yet to decide who its recipient shall be. It might sit a spell in the studio while I think on it.

In the last week, I have received two Trash Bubbles from fellow mail artists and I must say, they are over-the-top amazing!

First to arrive was this one from Lucky Pierre, aka: Marla Kittler. At first, it didn’t seem like a bubble, as it came in a brown wrapping like a typical package.

When opened, the box gave way to this:

Had I paid closer attention to the sea horses stamped on the outer package, I’d have had a hint as to its contents. The tiny shells, shark tooth and vertebrae are stunning in this bubble!

The back was no less so…

Superb job, Lucky “Marla” Pierre! I love it! It made my day!

The second Trash Bubble came from C. Mehrl Bennett. I’d had a heads-up that this one was coming and I was eager for its arrival. So much so, that I was sincerely disappointed that it did not arrive over the weekend as anticipated.

There is so much going on inside this piece and my photos don’t do it justice. It is a feast for the eyes, full of texture and rich color! Thank you, Catherine! It’s amazing!

Send your versions of Trash Bubbles to the studio any time you wish. I will be happy to feature them in an upcoming Tuesday Trash Bubble post.

Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
